Rejoin game after internet disconnect?

Post by Felderburg »

I was playing a game of MegaMek with some friends, and my internet had a momentary interruption that disconnected me from the game. I was able to rejoin the server, but I was "Felderburg.2," and the original "Felderburg" was no longer active, despite being listed as connected. The host was able to kick the "Felderburg" user, but we weren't sure what commands to use to replace the old "Felderburg" user with my current "Felderburg.2" connection. We were able to replace it with a bot, but obviously that's not what we wanted.

How does a player who got disconnected from a game rejoin it?

After kicking the player ghost ID, have the .2 player disconnect and join again.
When the injustice is great enough, Justice will lend me the strength needed to correct it.
None may stand against it.
It will shatter every barrier, sunder any shield, tear through any enchantment and lend its servant the power to pass sentence.
Know this: there is nothing on all the Planes that can stay the hand of justice when it is brought against them.
It may unmake armies. It may sunder the thrones of gods.
Know that for ALL who betray Justice, I am their fate... and fate carries an Executioner's Axe.

Thanks! Hopefully we don't have to use this knowledge, but it's good to have!
